    Saw these guys on Monday night, with Alestorm. Spirited heroic-metal band with a lot of heart.

    I just stumbled across this band, I feel like my life lacked meaning until now....



    All kidding aside, I really dig the swamp OD sounds of those massive 4/4 riffs. I wanna be that kinda rhythm guitarist. Better go practice.

    I can't stand most Wilco fans...they just talk and talk through the whole show while I'm trying to hear what Nels (and Jeff & Pat) are doing. But freaking Nels Cline. Wow.

    Listening to a little piece of musical history, from Sam Phillips' famed Memphis studio. The book I'm reading tells how it came about. The title "Raunchy" was provocative for that time.

    Then I found out this was the song that got George Harrison into the Beatles! At age fourteen, he played it for John and Paul on the upper deck of a double-decker bus. He was so letter-perfect they decided to let him join their band, known at that time as the Quarrymen. Years later, Paul and George and Ringo would come back to it.

    It's October first! So how about kicking off the month of Halloween with the tale of a pirate curse, told in rousing song? (Whatever you do, don't *ever* mutiny on your captain!)

    I can picture Halloween Night in the late 50's, with this song playing over my Cadillac's radio as I'm heading to the drive-in theater to see Invasion of the Saucer Men on a double bill with The Day the Earth Stood Still.

    Spanish and Hawaiian styles teaming up--sweet. And is that a Gibson ES-150 she's playing? Charlie Christian made history with one of those.

    Not sure, I thought it was a Kay ? I do know the lap steel is a Rickenbacker model B "Panda" because I'm trying to find one reasonable and she contacted me about one of hers .:) If I'm ever in contact again I'll ask about the acoustic/electric.
